I do pretty good without snoods. Just slipknots. And the big advantage to slipknots is when you wanna de-bait (if using chicken necks) just tie one end of line to a boat cleat while your anchor, float and chain is still on other end and drag line about 5-7 mph about 100 yards. Slip knots pull through baits and line is clean. This video shows how to tie a slipknot.Hey there, snoods or no snoods? if not using snoods, how are you tying the necks on?
my line has snoods but they get caught in the prop stick at times, and i feel this may be shaking the crabs off our line... I also hate the fact that when a crab steals a bait, the fuel hose tends to fall off into the river adding to the garbage floating around in it...
ps, I went last Saturday south of the rt. 4 pax river bridge in 8-11 ft of water, the tide was supposedly outgoing but it was hard to tell if the section i was in had much movement. we only caught one damn crab lol. hopefully it picks up soon!
